League: NETHERLANDS: Eredivisie – Round 6
Match: 19:45 Vitesse – Den Haag
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
Average odds: 1.55
Bookmaker: Bwin
Result: 1:1 LOST


Saturday night’s Eredivisie action is rounded off with the clash between high-flying Vitesse and a very unpredictable Den Haag. The hosts have a strong home record versus Den Haag in the top flight (W11, D6, L4) and have lost just once in the last nine (W5, D3, L1).
Goals are usually guaranteed when Vitesse take to the GelreDome pitch. Each of their last seven Eredivisie home games have produced over 2.5 goals. Vitesse won five of those games and scored at least three goals in four.
Compound the above stat with the fact that Den Haag have conceded at least two goals in each of their last six away Eredivisie games, and the visitors could be in for a long evening. Furthermore, Den Haag manager Alfons Groenendijk has a record of W2, D1, L4 versus Vitesse, losing each of his last two encounters with both teams scoring.
Meanwhile, Vitesse manager Leonid Slutsky has lost just one Eredivisie game in his short time in the Netherlands (W2, D2, L1) and should feel confident about his first meeting with Den Haag.
Players to watch: Fox in the box Tim Matavz (Vitesse) scored his 75th and 76th Eredivisie goals last time out. Interestingly, each of his last 51 goals have come from inside of the box.
Ahead of this Eredivisie round, Nasser El Khayati leads the Eredivisie scoring charts after scoring six goals in his last three Eredivisie starts for Den Haag.
Stat attack: Vitesse have been winning at both HT/FT in each of their league victories this term.
Conversely, Den Haag have been losing at both HT/FT in each of their three losses so far this term.
With 16 goals shipped, no side has conceded more goals than Den Haag after five games.
